An example: the default setting of a specific Fingering mark is Above the staff. I wish to flip it below.
To do this, I have to check the box for “Staff-relative position”. Once I do this, the “Above” setting is highlighted, and I must then click on Below.
Would it be fair to say that when I check the box, most of the time, I want to change the current setting, rather than ‘force-maintain’ it? So, it would save a click if Dorico automatically flipped such settings as soon as I check the box.
Options with more than two settings are perhaps more tricky, though there’s a certain logic to be applied there, too. Accidentals can Show, Hide or have Parentheses. Again, if I check on the box for an accidental that is currently hidden, I’m going to want to Show it. (And then possibly parenthesise it.)
In short: when I check the box to alter a setting, the current setting is almost always going to be the one I don’t want. Isn’t it?
